Ok. Let me make a couple things clear. No I am not selling out. Yes, I will still be shooting all of my personal work on medium and large format film. That said, I'm breaking out into the commercial market and have to go digital by necessity. I will only be shooting manual focus lenses. I repeat, I will only be shooting manual focus lenses. I've decided that digital MF is a little too rich for my blood at the moment. That aside, let's operate under the assumption that I can afford anything you can name. What I don't want, is to pay for features I don't need. After thinking long and hard about buying an M6TTL or an Ikon, I decided to pursue more paying work. I do not need auto focus. I do not need multiple FPS. I do not need auto-bracketing. Think of another auto-feature. Got one? Ok now get rid of it. I don't need it. I don't mind paying $3k. But I don't want to buy features I won't use. What I could use, is megapixels. I need at least 12. And I need the ability to aperture priority older manual lenses. With the above in mind, Canon is out because it fails to meet the last criterion. NOTE: I don't want to read any bull****. I want some educated opinions. Now I know how prone we can be to bull****. So I'll tell you right now, if you respond with a suggestion that doesn't abide by my criteria, I don't care what it is, and I don't care who you are, you will go on my ignore list immediately. Ok. Now that's out of the way. I demo'd the D300, the D700, the D3, and the Pentax K20D today. The Nikons are nice but I don't know how I feel about spending $2K+ for 12MP. The Pentax is a great little camera, and I have a line of K-Mount glass. But word on the street is they have plans to stop producing dSLR's and I don't want to have to switch systems if I decide 6 months from now that I need more resolution. So, let the battle begin.
